About this Program

The Bachelors of Industrial/Organisational Psychology (I/O) was proposed to respond to the growing demand for Psychologists in this applied area in the Country. The field of I/O Psychology is about the application of the methods, principles and theory of the science of behaviour and mental processes of people at work. Therefore, students who opt for specialized training in I/O Psychology as an applied area can do so right from their first year of study. This allows students to get adequate exposure to the field of I/O Psychology and other basic areas of Psychology. In addition, undertaking a course of this kind will enhance the student’s capacity for graduate training in the professional area of I/O Psychology.

PROGRAMME OBJECTIVES
The course objectives include:
(i) To provide learning opportunities for students in I/O Psychology to:

Acquire a body of knowledge and skills associated with developing I/O Psychology human resources that will enable the students to translate theory into practice.
Develop insights into the contextual and practical issues of I/O Psychology, especially as they relate to developing economies.
Gain a deeper understanding of the theory, assumptions and implications of I/O Psychology especially in the context of the new organisational realities.
